"SCOTS MUST USE 'BOTH VOTES SNP' TO RE-ELECT GOVERNMENT"
Welcoming the TNS-BRMB opinion poll conducted for stv to coincide with tonight's Scottish Parliament election leaders' debate, Scottish National Party Depute Leader and Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said:
"This is an excellent poll - it indicates that people want to re-elect the SNP Government and Alex Salmond for First Minister because they want to achieve the five-year Council Tax freeze, protection for Scotland's health budget, and retention of the 1,000 additional police officers that the SNP have delivered.
"And if people want to re-elect the SNP Government and secure these vital policies, they must vote SNP on both the constituency and list ballots - it has to be 'both votes SNP' on Thursday.
"We are taking nothing for granted. People support our record, team and vision for Scotland - many for the first time - and we will work harder than ever before to achieve the re-election of the SNP Government and Alex Salmond for First Minister on Thursday."
